Chocolatopolis..

2 years ago i went to Brussels with Nadia to see our friend Elisabetta who was there in Erasmus..

I don’t know how many of you have already been at this amazing capital, but i had no idea how the city was. So a few days before our departure i was out with some friends and they were telling me that it’s a boring city and that there is nothing to see except from Grand Place and the waffles of course! So i went with minimun expectations and of course i was pleasantly surprised! Not from the waffles, which by the way i didn’t eat as mush as i thought i would, but from everything else!

I really don’t know from where to start, the beers (whick i wasn’t a huge fan), the chocolate (addicted!), the Art Nouveau or the nightlife..

Day 1

Arrived at Brussels around 18:00 so we went directly at Elisabetta’s home to catch up! Then we went for dinner at a district full of little restaurants and bars. And after that we went at a party in an amazing typical belgian house!

Day 2

The weather was cloudy, so we decided to go for a chocolate! After that we visited Horta Museum. And then we were just wondering through the streets os Brussels! A stop to eat and drink something at Zebra, you have to visit this place! Then more walking, a stop for belgian fries and then we visited the famous Grand Place and the Manneken Pis. We had to stop for a beer! So we went at Archiduc, where there was a live performance, and then for dinner we went at a traditional restaurant for moules-frites, which are mussels cooked or steamed with onions and celery served with fries.…. Back at home preparing for a concert which ended at 7 o’clock in the morning!

Day 3

Woke up really late.. The weather was amazing! We went at the Marolles district, there was an enormous flea market that day. Then back to the center to have a waffle and a tea, and more walking. When you visit Brussels you have to go for a beer at Bonnefooi, definitely my favorite place in Brussels!

Day 4

Atomium day! Then we visited the European Quarter and then back at Zebra, for a delicious soup and an amazing atmosphere! Got back home really late so we decided to stay in our final night in Brussels, since we had an early flight.
